As I said above, you get three CDs with software along with the scanner. These are:
- CD with the driver and EPSON Scan software
- CD with Adobe Photoshop Elements 2
- CD with SilverFast Ai 6
You must install the software from EPSON before attaching the scanner to the computer. Besides the driver, the following components can be installed from the first CD:
Exclusive utilities from EPSON
The scanner’s driver – more precisely, the software shell that is invoked from the control application – is known well to users. EPSON has unified it for all its scanners, thus making it much easier for hardware reviewers to describe its functionality. In fact, if you’ve ever worked with one scanner from EPSON, you won’t spend much time mastering the software for another model.
The driver of the F-3200 offers two modes: Home Mode and Professional Mode. Like before, EPSON invites you to choose a particular mode depending on your level of expertise.
Besides the software from EPSON, I would like to single out the professional version of a popular third-party scanning program. This is SilverFast Ai 6. It comes in a DVD box with a booklet and two calibration targets of the IT8.7 format. You should realize of course that such additions directly affect the price of the product.
